Can post redundancy commission be counted as tax free redundancy pay?

I was made redundant last year. My employer agreed to 3 months redundancy payment, and agreed to pay commission on a number of deals which would not have been due until later if I had remained with them.
The redundancy amount was less than the tax free limit of 30k.
Since the commission was discretionary, and paid following my departure, with the redundancy, Am I entitled to count it as a 'redundancy' payment, and therefore part of the tax free limit?
Obviously this could be quite a big tax difference, so I don't want to get it wrong.
